Track Name: Annabel
Annabel says to me, "I'd rather drive in the morning"
'Cause all her friends and enemies have all fled this town
So we ride, so alive, at the stroke of 1 AM
Speed on through the sunrise and then she disappears

Do you believe
Love is fleeting and largely pharmaceutical
Lust is permanent, intangible and durable

In my backyard, Astral Weeks on the stereo
I say that I just don't feel beside you
Annabel, you can stay the course but you'll never change me
But feel free coming as you please

Some nights we stay on the ground stumbling to get up again
Some nights you stay underground, never to get up again

Do you believe
Love is fleeting and largely pharmaceutical
Lust is permanent, intangible and durable

Annabel, Annabel
Buy me a beer and go to hell
I don't need your scars in my life

'Cause I'm out here on the streets working all the Camel Lights girls
3rd & Washington redeems me all the time

Love is fleeting and largely pharmaceutical
Lust is permanent, intangible and durable

If I can't change, then I'm in love
And if I'm not, it's not enough
Track Name: Arms
It always seems to end the same
A figurehead in picture frames
Menageries of mental games I never did suspect

And every day my steady hands
Take notice of these other plans
To shake myself into the sands and keep my heart insane

The whispers grow into a roar
I'm always told to offer more than what I can
But it's not a choice I make

'Cause everybody knows
We'll only lose control

So give up your arms now, baby
There's no need for rumors, I need you to know

Ambivalence to paranoid
Calamities we should avoid
A face that can remain devoid of any damn concern

So I'm done explaining how my heart beats
Or how the coldness keeps me on the ground
I'm not a slave to misinterpretation
"It's not you, it's me"

'Cause everybody knows
We only lose control

So give up your arms now, baby
There's no need for rumors, I need you to know

Said and done, you'll be the one overthrown

So give up your arms now, baby
There's no need for rumors, I need you to know
Track Name: The Green Room
In this subconcious spectacle of my feeble mind I know
Rock and roll means well, but it pours this honey in your ear
And so of course I still believe in minor miracles
I grab her hips and taste her lips
She screams at me and runs back home
Well, I should have known

So now I'm making eyes at every girl in this god damned room
Her and her and her and her and the two of them
Well, this one's at the bar all by her lonesome sipping Stoli O
And I lay some line about how we're on up next tonight
She kinda smirks like she kinda knows
I'm on to something here
But then she disappears
And I should have known

I'm one more incident away from them locking me away
In a place where I can't see my friends or family
And as they're bolting up this door so I can't hurt no one no more
I think of you and how you split my mind in two
'Cause you're so beautiful
Like Elizabeth Banks in Invincible
But all I can see of you are your Bette Davis eyes

Well, this establishes a paradigm that stays with me
I guess that's how you get a reputation that precedes
Your actions just distract me from you ever reaching that stage of attraction
And maybe this would have worked out if it wasn't for that stupid word of mouth
Now I can't help myself
Arms strapped across my chest
I look so good in black
But white suits me best

I'm one more incident away from them locking me away
In a place where I can't see my friends or family
And as they're bolting up this door so I can't hurt no one no more
I think of you and how you split my mind in two
'Cause you're so beautiful
Like Olivia Wilde as Jenny Reilly
But all I can see of you are your Betty Grable thighs

I keep begging them for more
But they've thrown away the key
There's someone in my head
And it's still me

I'm one more incident away from them locking me away
In a place where I can't see my friends or family
And as they're bolting up this door so I can't hurt no one no more
I think of you and how you split my mind in two
'Cause you're so beautiful
Like Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation
But all I can see of you is your Rita Hayworth smile
Track Name: Bridges
It's like an angel flying across the stage
Kinetic energy runs through our veins
So ten years later, it stays inside of me
I wanna break my legs just so I don't forget about you
And everything you taught to me
I wanna be a martyr
But keep the message folded into my tongue

Attenuated, I keep it underneath
But I can feel it bursting through my chest
Another moment, another tragedy
It's so appealing, but all I wanna do is scream my lungs out
Keep it close to everyone so I can be a hero
Be the one to save somebody in need

Here's your answer:

I just wanna say thank you
For all the pain that you've been through
With every scar that's worn
Another star is born
And I just wanna say thank you

I used to think I was just my DNA
A mere reflection of what I used to be
But this addiction will keep me moving on
I keep my wit intact and fingers ready
"Take a breather?"
I can't understand it
I just wanna be a savior
But never condescend to those that I love

Here's your answer:

I just wanna say thank you
The only thing that I can do
With every scar that's worn
Another star is born
And I just wanna say thank you

I just want to say thank you for every day
